Here are things you must know about the movie before you book your tickets
- The movie is a crime drama directed by Shekar Kammula
- The screenplay for the Telugu version has been penned by renowned Telugu writer Yendauri Veerendranath
- Anamika is the Telugu remake of the Hindi original Kahaani which starred Vidya Balan and went on to become a super duper hit
- Kahaani was set in Kolkata while Shekar has extensively shot Anamika in the dusty streets of the Old Hyderabad City.
- The movie is a bilingual, made simultaneously in Tamil too
- The first choice to play the lead was Anushka Shetty. However, her unavailability owing to her allotting bulk dates to period films (read Guna Shekar's Rudhramadevi and Rajamouli's Baahubali). Thus, the role went to Nayanthara.
Synopsis: The story is about a woman Nayanthara who comes to Hyderabad in search of her husband who is a software engineer but suddenly went missing. There is little that the cops can do since they are unable to trace any records of her husband in the guest house, office or even airport immigration. Things take a drastic turn when Nayan learns that her husband had a lookalike and perhaps that couldhelp her get closer to the search. But soon her personal quest turns into a political conspiracy.
